We Are Not Your Soldiers Visiting High Schools and Colleges


By War Criminals Watch - Posted on 06 October 2012

We Are Not Your Soldiers is up to a good start this fall semester visiting high schools and colleges with veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.  We have been to several schools in NYC and northern California and have plans in the works for Chicago, Hawaii and other locations.  Students learn about the vets' experiences and why they should not enlist to fight in these ongoing wars.


As the occupation of Afghanistan and "sanitized warfare" through kill lists and drone-bombings continues no matter who will be president, we need to intervene in the lives of young people before they are signed away to the war machine. See wearenotyoursoldiers.org.

 Find out more about the We Are Not Your Soldiers tour—watch this overview:
We need to find more volunteers to accompany the vets to the schools and represent We Are Not Your Soldiers.  We will do trainings and provide materials.  If you would like to participate, please contact us at wearenotyoursoldiers@worldcantwait.net.

If you are a veteran and would like to participate, please contact us.

If you are a teacher, professor, student or parent who would like us to visit your school, please contact us

We are Not Your Soldiers needs your support.

World Can't Wait brings Iraq and Afghanistan veterans to classes to tell the truth about the wars and what the military is really recruiting for.  We need your support to make this happen.

Funds are urgently needed to pay for travel expenses and a small stipend to vets who must take time off from work in order to do these visits. Donate generously so that we can bring these voices to the young people who so urgently need to hear them.

Email donations@worldcantwait.net to earmark your donation for We Are Not Your Soldiers.
